at the
7th Symposium on Conformal and Probabilistic Prediction with Applications (COPA 2018)
Maastricht, The Netherlands, June 11 - 13, 2018


Important Dates:
Full paper submission: March 19th, 2018
Author Notifications: April 30th, 2018
Poster abstract Submission: May 4th, 2018
Camera-ready submission: May 14th, 2018

A substantial body of work from researchers around the globe has been devoted to the development of Machine Learning techniques for a variety of medical applications. Due to the risk sensitive nature of the particular application area, the quantification of uncertainty in the outputs of such techniques is of paramount importance. This renders Conformal Prediction as a key tool for strengthening the impact that the intelligent analysis of medical and biomedical data can have in healthcare. Already several Conformal Prediction approaches have been developed and have been shown to be extremely useful for tackling particular medical problems.

The aim of this special session is to serve as a forum for the presentation of new and ongoing work and the exchange of ideas between researchers on the application of Conformal Prediction in medicine.

Authors are invited to submit original, English-language research contributions or experience reports. Papers should be no longer than 20 pages formatted according to the well-known JMLR (Journal of Machine Learning Research) style. Instructions for formatting JMLR papers are available at:


All aspects of the submission and notification process will be handled online via the EasyChair Conference System at:


Please make sure you select the "Special Session: Conformal Prediction in Medical Applications" track in the first step of the submission process.

Submitted papers will be refereed for quality, correctness, originality, and relevance. Notification and reviews will be communicated via email. All accepted papers will be presented at the symposium and published by PMLR (Proceedings of Machine Learning Research). They will also be considered for potential publication in the Special Issues of the Symposium.
